Zoom Audio Troubleshooting

Connect to Zoom Audio Upon Joining a Meeting

The most common cause of Zoom audio issues is not connecting to Zoom Audio when you join a meeting.

After you've clicked on the link to join the Zoom session, you should see an option to "Join With Computer Audio" (or "Call Using Internet Audio" if you are using a mobile device). Click on that option. 

If you do not "Join With Computer Audio" upon entering the meetings and are unable to hear the speaker, follow these steps:

  1. Click on the headset at the bottom left of the Zoom window.
  2. Click on the prompt "Join With Computer Audio" (or "Call Using Internet Audio" on a mobile device).
